Dolphins break NFL record in battle with Giants,……

The Miami Dolphins’ offensive has been among the NFL’s most productive this season, but what they’ve been doing is historic.

The Dolphins broke the St. Louis Rams’ 2,527-yard milestone set in 2000 on Sunday by amassing more yards in a team’s first five games of a season than any other team in NFL history.


The fact that Miami achieved this feat with a full quarter remaining in their Week 5 game against the New York Giants is what makes this record so astounding.

Miami Dolphins (4-1) are back in first place and ahead of the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East after the Dolphins’ 31-16 victory over the New York Giants and the Bills’ 25-20 loss to Jacksonville. The Dolphins had three plays of 60 yards or more, but quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw a pick-6 and had another interception at the Dolphins’ 30-yard line.

Although this wasn’t quite the “get-right” game the Dolphins planned for and fans expecting due to the interceptions, a win is nonetheless a win. Here are a few additional observations from Sunday:

Tua is a person. Quarterback Two interceptions from Tua Tagovailoa helped the Giants stay in the contest.

It appeared that Tagovailoa was attempting a touch pass over the head of blocking center Connor Williams on his second interception. The intended receiver, Jaylen Waddle, was missed by the ball, which instead fell into the hands of Giants linebacker Bobby Okereke. In the third quarter, the Giants made a field goal to reduce their deficit to 24–13.

When Tagovailoa had a pick-6 by strong safety Jason Pinnock, a score that reduced the Giants’ deficit to 14-10 late in the second quarter, it was Okereke who deflected the ball.

After completing 22 of 30 passes for 308 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions, one sack, and a passer rating of 100.8, Tagovailoa. Christopher Perkins

Big plays have returned.
With rookie running back De’Von Achane’s 76-yard touchdown run, wide receiver Tyreek Hill’s 69-yard touchdown catch, and Hill’s 64-yard catch-and-run reception, the Dolphins had three of their four longest offensive plays of the season on Sunday.

The 68-yard touchdown reception by wide receiver Robbie Chosen versus Denver is the only other play in that category.

After the Dolphins lost 48-20 to Buffalo the previous week, big offensive plays took a one-week hiatus, but they returned against the Giants.

The Dolphins had 11 plays of 30 yards or more when they first started the game, but they only had one against Buffalo and two (of 43 and 30 yards) against New England.

With his 76-yard run against the Giants, 67-yard run against Denver, and 40-yard run against Denver, Achane owns three of the Dolphins’ eight longest plays.
